Call upon The Great Spirit of 'Ubuntu'...

Hello Ubuntu Developers,

I posted this THREAD<>recently
at the Ubuntu forums because there is a guy out
THERE <> who is trying to get a, in
my opinion, very useful script running for Ubuntu-8.04-amd64.
In a conversation with him, why remastersys is causing problems on my
8.04-amd64 installation, I learned that the Ubuntu Devel-team  is not very
He wrote:

I asked them for info on casper and ubiquity and never even got a response
back from them so remastersys is a complete solo effort on my part and
anything I learned about casper and ubiquity was from reading an examining
all of the scripts involved.
Each new version they add something and it looks like the amd64 version has
even more changes.  They have not been consistent in terms of the behind the
scenes stuff for the liveCD boot since I started making remastersys.  I have
had to change it slightly for every version that they come out with and if I
now have to change it specifically for amd64 compared to i386 I'm not going
to be happy - lol.

On behalf of the people of the Ubuntu-amd64 community who are interested in
using the remastersys script, I ask politely, if the developer(s) in
question, could give him a possibility to ask questions or address/discuss
the issue.
Remember *What does Ubuntu mean? *

*Ubuntu is an African word meaning 'Humanity to others', or 'I am what I am
because of who we all are'. The Ubuntu distribution brings the spirit of
Ubuntu to the software world. *

Thanks for taking time to read it.
